Initial Break Out With Aha And How Much To Use When First Starting?aha alpha hydroxy acid glycolic acid

I have been on the acne.org regimen for almost 2 months and I'm seeing great results! My skin is so flaky though...it's embarassing :/ I use at least 8 drops of jojoba oil twice per day...and like 3 pumps of the acne.org moisturizer morning and night and my skin is flaky still! Especially along my jawline, chin area, and forehead. I'm thinking that the AHA might be a good way to exfoliate some of this dead skin off my face!
I'm nervous though about the initial break out with AHA. I have sensitive skin so I have to start really slow too. What can I expect when starting it? How much should I start with? I was planning to mix a little in with my moisturizer.
Feed back is appreciated!

If you have sensitive skin, you should do a test patch of skin; just apply a small amount of AHA on your jawline or under your ear to make sure that you don't have an adverse reaction to it.

Im planning to start using cetaphil moisturizing lotion at night and see if it helps. I want to exfoilate my skin so bad haha. Get all the flakes off.

As for the flakes, it took care of my dry skin within 2 weeks. No more flakes etc and it just kept improving each week from there.
Good luck and let us know how you get on.

As for when my flaky skin is too much I can't take it, I mix the acne.org moisturizer with a little bit of cetaphil moisturizer & it helps a lot. My skin would not only look flakey and gross, but feel tight and uncomfortable & mixing in the cetaphil moisturizer helped a lot (I still have some flakes though)
Since your post was from about 2 months ago, how is the AHA working out for you?
